The main objective of the classes is to help you developing a physical relationship with your body. By doing so, you can learn more on how your body functions, expand your physical capacity and regain your freedom of movement.
On the long term, studying your body will enable you to understand what causes pain and how to reduce it, and prevent physical limitations and injuries. But most important – to establish an embodied lifestyle that is integrated to your day-to-day activities and to simply improve your life quality.
In each class, we will focus on different movement principles and will study them through different materials (contemporary dance, martial arts, contact improvisation, functional training etc.) We will learn solo materials and will work with a partner or with the whole group.
